ELVIS PRESLEY
IN THE GHETTO
�������������������������������������������������������������
1- Listen to the song and fill in the gaps with he right form of the verb:

As the snow��(fly)

On a cold and gray�Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child�� (be) born
In the ghetto
and his mama �(cry)�
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
It' �(be) another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People,�don't you �(understand)
child �(need) a helping hand
or he'll grow�
to be an angry young man some day
take a look at you and me,
�(be) we too blind to see?�
Do we simply �(turn) our heads�
and�look the other way?

Well the world �(turn)
and a hungry litle boy with a runny nose
�(play)�in the street as the cold wind �(blow)�
In the ghetto

And his hunger �(burn)�
so he �(start)�to roam the streets at night
and he �(learn) how to steal
an he �(learn) how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
a young man �(break) away
he �(buy) a gun, �(steal) a car,
�(try) to run, but he don't get far
And his mama �(cry)�

As a crowd gathers 'round
and angry young man
face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto�

And as her young man �(die),
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

And his mama �(cry)
